When I started actually thinking about my travels in September I was certain that it would be more than my August trips. South America, Europe and a couple west coast runs seemed like it should be more total miles than my nearly 30,000 in August. Alas, it seems I’m pretty bad at geography or at least at estimating my travels. That’s not to say I won’t be traveling a ton (24,995 miles at last count); it is just not quite as many miles as I expected. And nearly all of it is in coach.
I just got back from another few days in Rio which was spectacular. The sun was out, the beach was warm and the caipirinhas were delicious. Plus I brought back 6 bottles of cachaça so I can make my own for the next few months. That was roughly 5,000 miles of the flying but there’s still much more to be done. I’ve got a work trip to Southern California, a transatlantic ticket I haven’t purchased yet to get me to Oslo in time for the SAS MD80 farewell Do, a BA A80 long-haul inaugural from Heathrow to LAX and then FTU in Tampa at the end of the month. Only one segment – LAX-JFK after the BA inaugural – is confirmed in a premium cabin as of right now. I get to travel a lot the old-fashioned way: In coach.
